<p class="MsoNormal">Greetings State Administrators, <o:p></o:p></p>
<p class="MsoNormal"><o:p> </o:p></p>
<p class="MsoNormal">Through a USDA grant awarded to NC Agricultural & Technical State University (NCA&T) we our adding our Food and Nutrition I course to the NC Virtual Public School (NCVPS) for NC students to take online. In our conversations with the NCVPS
 staff we want to ensure access to FCCLA. They are interested in affiliating a statewide virtual chapter, facilitated by a contracted FCS Teacher remotely. They have clubs they support in other areas like honor societies, foreign language clubs, etc. But FFA
 and FCCLA would be the first CTSOs they would support virtually.  I’m wondering if anyone has experience in establishing and managing a virtual FCCLA chapter and can share any best practices, resources, or suggestions.
